Via Matthew Yglesias, a nifty website gives you a demographic profile of your ZIP code. Something that stands out in my area: there’s a 9.4% unemployment rate, yet a whopping 24.3% of my neighbors live below the poverty line.

Incidentally, the highest poverty rate of any ZIP code in the state is 69.2%, and it’s not in any inner city, but rather in Brownwood, MO, just southwest of Cape Girardeau. 

What’s it like in your neck of the woods?
